that, what do we have in this country if we don't have democracy. >> that was john mccain's main point. he said the people have spoken. >> there was a vote. votes mean something. >> or else why have them. >> and if you're going to make comparisons to tumult and democracies of the old style, it's ted cruz who's showing his contempt for democrat eck process here. >> let's, ted cruz made a quick stop at rush limbaugh's radio program to defend his republicans. >> the single biggest surprise on arriving to the senate is the defeatest attitude here. i mean we don't even talk about how to win. let's get a show vote. i promise you, rush, if you had to sit through one senate lunch, you'd be in therapy for a month. >> defeatism. let's go there. the guy, where we headed here, david? >> it was kind of nice to see john mccain come out and try to put down this analogy and this excessive rhetoric that ted cruz is throwing around, but i think in a lot of ways by putting sarah palin on the ticket, john boehner rode into power on the backs of his tea party tiger. they have handed over the keys to the ca

if they vote to shut the government down. >> let's look at what senator john mccain said about this. >> i think senator cruise is free to do what he wants with the rule of the senate. i can tell you in the united states senate we will not repeal or defund obamacare. we will not. and to think we can is not rational. >> not rational, the kind phrase or what i am driving at here. steve schmidt, your former boss, john mccain. what does ted cruise know that john mccain doesn't know. ted cruise is running for the president of the united states. and this fear, is fundamentally about the iowa caucuses. the failure to pass this will simply be evidence of his commitment to true conservatism. the gospel he is preaching out along the campaign trail before very long. there is great anger in the republican party. and they don't fall on deaf ears for the activists based in the republican party. if you are about ted cruz and you care about yourself interest here. this is great politics. because, you know, he is, he is rising at the expense of the party. at the expense of the congressional brand. i think what's
